Derek Jeter was on the Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon last night. Since retiring on Sunday, Jeter has also done a sit down interview with Matt Lauer on the Today Show.
During the interview with Jimmy Fallon, Jeter talked about his new website, the Players’ Tribune, retiring his #2 jersey, how much playing for the Yankees meant to him, how his last game was like a funeral as well as other interesting topics. Jeter has been opening up a lot more recently. Fallon was at Jeter’s final home game at Yankee Stadium, and Jeter showed his sense of humor by how he was joking with Fallon about Fallon’s reaction to Jeter’s last at-bat. Jeter claimed that it was like he was at his own funeral during his final few games.
Below is the memorable interview with Jimmy Fallon:
Here are two of his new ventures: One is Derek Jeter Unfiltered with never before seen pictures and stories that give readers insight into his life that had not been known before, and the second is his new book called The Contract, geared for middle school students, that is based on the contract he had to sign for his parents in order to play sports.
